Art Gallery, Thinking of You Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

The "Art Gallery" set is one of my new favorites. I have a lot of fun using the large flower but I struggle with the smaller one because it's one piece and I have to color the image with markers or use a stamp set and everything is in one color. I like the stems green so it pretty much has to be colored with markers.  It ranks up there with fussy stamping.  Not one of my favorite things to do but I do it because I like the end results.  I found the card here on Pinterest. And here's my card. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I took a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Oh So Ombre" 6" x 6" stack. There's a lot of fun colors in the pack. I took the "Blackberry Bliss" one and textured it using the new "Painted Texture" embossing folder.  This folder is SO fun and makes a great looking background.

I stamped the flowers using my Stampin' Up! markers. I used Granny Apple Green for the stems and Melon Mambo for the flowers. The highlights on the flowers were stamped on using Rich Razzleberry ink from the ink pad.  I did set my stamp up in my Stamparatus so I could color more on the stamp if I needed to and I did need to! 

Once the stamping was done I used the matching die cuts to cut out the image. 

The words are from the same set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I die cut them with the fun rectangle die that came in the bundle.  

I set the flowers on the left side in place using Dimensionals.  For the flowers on the right, I cut off the small budding flowers. I made sure I rounded all the edges so it didn't look like I just lopped them off. I set the larger flower piece in place using tape on some parts of the flowers and the rest had Dimensionals added.  I added two small Dimensionals to the budding flowers and tucked them in under one of the upper flowers as you can see in the photo.

I added tape to the center part of the word piece where it touches the leaf and Dimensionals to the ends of the word piece and I set it in place. I didn't add any embellishments. I was thinking about it but I liked it the way it was.

Thank you SO much for taking your time today to stop by and take a peek,                                                Wanda
